Volume 2 looks in detail at Hamish Henderson's contribution to the folk revival, his work at The School of Scottish Studies and his involvement with The People's Festival Ceilidhs of the early 1950s (in many ways the predecessors of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and which had an impact throughout Britain). Hamish Henderson introduced a whole generation of young singers and musicians to a living tradition of folksong and classic ballads from performers such as Jessie Murray, Jeannie Robertson and The Stewarts of Blair.
